One of Nigeriaâ€™s finest producers OJB Jezreel suffers renal failure and is on dialysis, currently needing $100,000 (about N16 Million) to conclude operations that would see that new kidneys (donor found) would be transplanted successfully. The producer is expected to have had the operation carried out on him within the next 7 weeks.
Inasmuch as the celebrity producer tried to keep the matter under wraps, his team realized that there was no harm in making his health state public, so the media passed it on. For the past one or two weeks since the public have been aware, the case has shifted from mass donations to pointing fingers at celebrities.
Trust Nigerians, they were swift to hit on extravagant celebrities and those who publicly flaunted their opulence to donate to save their ailing colleague. Pleas turned to insults and then to rage. It worked. Intimidation works in Nigeria. Thatâ€™s the first thing you learn when growing up.
The weird thing is that in a billion dollar industry called Nollywood (and the Nigerian entertainment industry) and its glamour, one would wonder why it is taking eons to put together the sum of N16 Million in charity for a top-notch producer.
A lot of good-spirited celebrities have come forward to support the #saveOJB cause. Some have offered prayers, some cash, some both.
Although, most would have loved to keep it private, it is near-pertinent to make it public in a private way because Nigerians would assume you didnâ€™t and would not hesitate to spit bile and vitriol and magma at you.
